Get a load of this Experience in Manchester, Greater Manchester.
Imagine crashing through the undergrowth, dodging exploding paintballs, hiding in bunkers or spying on enemies from on high. On arrival, be kitted out with freshly laundered combat coveralls, full face protection paintball goggles and top of the range semi-automatic paintball gun with 100 paintballs each. Each player is given a full safety briefing by an experienced marshal before commencing play. This is a real chance to shake off day-to-day responsibilities and rekindle a spirit of adventure. There are between six and eight games included in the full day experience, played out within differently themed areas and zones, set up to test skills of strategy, leadership, navigation and teamwork.
Events run every weekend and occasionally on weekdays.
Paintballing will go ahead whatever the weather.
